Lanzarote 2018

Just back from a wonderful diving holiday in Lanzarote, where we dived with a great bunch of guys from Dive Safari.

Most did 2 dives per day with an extra dive on the Tuesday, this being the night dive.

Dives were a mix of shore dives and boat dives around Puerto del Carmen.  There was an abundance of marine life to see, Angel Sharks, Barracuda, Octupus, Sea Horses and lots more, I hope shortly to get some pictures from those who had cameras to show. On the Wednesday we dived Museo Atlántico which is sculptures in aound 12 – 14 metres underwater on the south coast in the Bahia de Las Coloradas. These were done by Jason deCaires Taylor a British sculptor. Opened in January 2017 they are to show what we are doing to our planet with the 300 life sized humans. Our guide told us that the 35 figures going to the opening in the wall were taken  of real people on the island. The area now has lots of marine life to see, we spotted 3 Angel Sharks with one making an attempt to eat Kev’s GoPro! The second dive being a wall dive which all enjoyed.

On the Sunday before we headed home we went off for a very dirty drive around the island in buggies with Buggies Lanzarote who are based at Puerto Calero Marina. This is a great day out driving through roads / tracks of lava where you get VERY dirty but have great fun negotiating your way along the tracks trying to follow another buggie through dense clouds of lava dust.

A massive thanks goes to Niz Hasham for arranging this wonderful holiday from flights, hotel, diving and the buggies.
